Premier Announces Additional High-Grade Gold Results at Hasaga

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Premier Gold Mines Limited (TSX-PG) is pleased to provide a summary of recent drill results from the Company’s 100%-owned Hasaga Project located at Red Lake, Ontario. The 2018 program is focused on infill and expansion of mineralization within the C-Zone, D-Zone and Buffalo targets areas.

 

 

The Hasaga Property is located in the Red Lake Greenstone Belt (RLGB), an Archean-aged greenstone belt within the Uchi Sub-province of the Superior Structural Province. The Red Lake district has produced nearly 29 million ounces of gold from multiple mineralization settings. Gold mineralization at the Hasaga Property occurs as quartz-veinlet stockworks veinlet arrays hosted predominantly within the Dome Stock (a granodioritic intrusion) or a nearby quartz-porphyry dike that occurs within the proximal Balmer Assemblage.

 

 

Highlights of the initial results from drilling in 2018 include the following:  

 

C-Zone

 

  • Hole HMP167: 5.5m of 7.21 g/t Au and 10.0m of 8.54 g/t Au
  • Hole HMP169: 3.0m of 14.36 g/t Au, 1.0m of 20.00 g/t Au and 2.0m of 58.76 g/t Au
  • Hole HMP169-W1: 4.0m of 26.45 g/t Au, 4.0m of 6.83 g/t Au and 5.0m of 17.93 g/t Au

 

 

D-Zone

 

  • Hole HMP171: 6.0m of 5.86 g/t Au
  • Hole HMP172: 6.0m of 13.67 g/t Au

 

 

The US$2.8 million 2018 program consists of 20,000 metres of drilling to follow up significant intercepts from Premier’s 2017 exploration program.  Highlight intercepts from the 2017 exploration campaign in the C-Zone include; 54.0 metres of 10.94 g/t Au in hole HMP151 and 21.0 metres of 12.03 g/t Au in hole HMP164-W3.  Figure 1 is a long section view displaying the location of the 2017-2018 drilling in the C-Zone, D-Zone and Buffalo target areas.

 

 

“We are very pleased with our success to date, in delineating and expanding the continuity of the Hasaga trend along strike and at depth,” commented Stephen McGibbon, Executive Vice-President of Premier Gold Mines Ltd in the Company’s C-Suite Blog (http://www.premiergoldmines.com/news/c-suite-blog). “These deeper, higher-grade structures could indicate the potential for the optionality of a lower CAPEX, higher grade standalone production opportunity in addition to the near surface open-pitable potential demonstrated in our 2016-17 program.”
